MRH partners with IONITY for electric deal

MRH has announced a partnership with IONITY a joint venture formed by leading car manufacturers which develops and implements a High-Power Charging (HPC) network for electric vehicles across Europe.  It is the same organisation Shell recently announced it is working with across 10 European countries.

IONITY is a joint venture between BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche, which aims to build 400 fast-charging stations across Europe by 2020.

MRH will be responsible for a significant number of sites across the UK by that time. The network will use the European charging standard Combined Charging System to significantly reduce charging times compared to existing systems.

Karen Dickens, chief executive of MRH, said: "We are delighted to be the first UK-based partner in this joint venture with the leading European car manufacturers. This joint venture will allow us to meet the needs of our customers who drive EVs."
